Promising review: “I rarely write reviews of products I’ve purchased on Amazon, but I’m so impressed with my Instant Pot Ultra 6 Qt that I felt compelled to share my experience. Clearly, I’m a bit late to jump on the Instant Pot bandwagon and had honestly never heard of it until I read a recent article in the New York Times, but after a few short weeks of use, I’m a zealous convert. Thus far, I’ve tried “hard boiled” eggs, cheesecake, pineapple upside down cake, Beef with Broccoli, Pork Chops with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, French Onion Soup Chicken, Beef Brisket and Banana Bread and all, with the exception of the Banana Bread, have been unqualified successes. (Although the banana bread tasted good, I wasn’t happy with the dense, tart-like consistency.) The Instant Pot is extremely versatile and very easy to use and cleans up quickly. I anticipate using the Instant Pot at least two or three times a week and, while I may never make yogurt, I know I have that option if the spirit moves.” —Kurtchan
